Are there any special technical aspects about this image that you want to point out?
The image was taken with film, and as such is a little grainy and soft-focussed due to the darker interior lighting and high contrast afforded by the light wells above. As I revisit this image over the years the technical imperfections have come to impart on me a sense that the image is true to my memory of the location. The colours were possibly accentuated by the type of film I used, but it still feels true to my memory of the space – I recall the colors seeming very intense, in direct contrast to my perceptions of Le Corbusier’s work, often portrayed in publications with black and white photos that seem almost clinical and devoid of life. Nothing is further from the truth when seen in person, and this photo reminds me of that.
